Sayuri began composing music during her second year of junior high school. In 2012, she was awarded the Grand Prix at the finals of the fifth Music Revolution, a competition sponsored by Yamaha Music. Afterwards, she became active as an indie artist. She adopted the name Sanketsu Shōjo Sayuri (酸欠少女さユり, lit. "Hypoxia Girl Sayuri") which is symbolic of her calling herself a 2.5-dimensional parallel singer-songwriter.
She held her first solo live in March 2015 at Tsutaya O-nest in Tokyo. Later that year, Sayuri made her major debut at 19, performing the ending theme song for Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace.
